Andalusia adds almost 2,500 coronavirus infections and remains only 9 points from extreme risk: {Translation} Updated: 04/16/2021, 15: 53
-Andalusia has reported 2,477 cases of coronavirus infection on Friday. Although the figure represents an increase on previous figures – 1,900 were reported yesterday – it is not very significant, given that last Friday the Regional Ministry of Health reported 2,250.
-The figure is less dramatic if it is noted that it is now 14 days since the Easter holidays and that the reflection of this reality in the pandemic figures is much more moderate than what occurred after Christmas with the third wave.
-However, make no mistake. The fourth wave is rising, albeit much more slowly than the previous one, and in fact Andalusia is this Friday only nine points away from the accumulated incidence rate that marks the extreme risk.
-Thus, the community records this Friday 241 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants to 14 days, 16 more than yesterday. Above 250, a figure that is likely to be exceeded this weekend, marks the extreme risk in the pandemic. With one week to go, the cumulative incidence is growing even more discreetly. Yesterday the AI was 114.4, this Friday it is 115.5.
-Meanwhile, the number of deaths has also increased slightly. Thus, this Friday Andalusia recorded 19 more deaths from the coronavirus, bringing the total number since the start of the pandemic to 9,508. For ten days the community has not exceeded 20 deaths per day, which is a sign of an improvement in this measure of the progress of the health crisis.
-Proof that the fourth wave is not like the third is the situation in hospitals. Andalusia has had three consecutive days with the same number of people admitted for coronavirus: 1,486. In addition, there are 295 people in the ICU for Covid-19, only two more than yesterday.

Spain will not require coronavirus tests or quarantines for travelers arriving with ‘vaccine passports’: Covid-19 vaccine passports, which the European Union is officially calling “Digital Green Certificates,” will allow citizens of Europe to enter Spain without having to quarantine or take a coronavirus test. That’s according to an announcement made on Thursday by Alfredo González, the general secretary of Digital Health, Information and Innovation at the country’s National Health System. The document will come in the form of a free QR code, will be available by the end of June, and will allow for “more people” to arrive in the country “in a safer manner,” he explained.
